Finally abaondoned this book, after speed-reading the central third of the book. All the 1850s Zionist stuff is a bit too remote for me, but I can see that it was unusual in it's time. What's more ... Read full review

User Review  - Haythem Bastawy - Goodreads

Daniel Deronda is an over-written excessively expansive book that would have made the same point and stressed on the same themes in just half its size. I give Eliot though the credit of immense ... Read full review
